Re: “Let’s Be Real: Dominick’s Real Italian

Super review. I have a new found respect for HH. Finally someone who can call a pot black. The poverty stricken neighbors who have never had a decent meal out in their lives defend this place simply because they don't know better.

Re: “Let’s Be Real: Dominick’s Real Italian

We've been going to Dominic's for years. We love the lunch special and the dinners have never left us grumbling. ( We don't care for Olive Garden. Tastes too much of Chef Boy-ar-dee. ) To each their own. I am just gob smacked at how such a lovely place got slagged. Pity. Dominic's is a grand place.

Re: “Let’s Be Real: Dominick’s Real Italian

I've never eaten there, but what I find curious is ...Why does the reviewer continue to dine at Dominicks if she thinks it's the worst place for Italian food ?? If I have ever had an awful food experience at a restaurant, I NEVER return.

Re: “Let’s Be Real: Dominick’s Real Italian

I live in the area and frequent Dominick's. No relation to the owners, not even friends. But love the food! Meatballs and spaghetti ...wonderful. Fried eggplant ...wonderful.

Re: “Let’s Be Real: Dominick’s Real Italian

i am always amused when people who don't agree with the review accuse the reviewer of a 'sour connection to the people" or they "have it out for them". Nothing could be further from the truth,, In my experience the responses are from people who are friends and family or have been asked by the owners to write a response.

Re: “Let’s Be Real: Dominick’s Real Italian

The reviews of this place say it all. Look at yelp!! It's a wonderful place with great food. Obviously this person either has sour connections to the people working there or just a sour attitude in general.

Re: “Let’s Be Real: Dominick’s Real Italian

I drive from the Far East side of town to specifically eat at Dominicks. Always had the best food. Pasta, pizza and salads either dressed appropriately or dressing on the side. This place has quality food and terrific service

Re: “Let’s Be Real: Dominick’s Real Italian

As a resident of this area (I live across from the omni) I resent sabasabas's comnent about that side of town. I am a bernie loving liberal that grew up on this side of town. If you want trump lovers, go to oro valley.Sabasabas you might want to remove that 10foot pole from you colon along with your head. As far as this hack review goes, you can place it where you removed the 10 foot pole from. While my experiences from Dominick's has ranged from good to terrible, I try to remember that it is a small business that has its good and bad days....just like every other place in tucson. As I am from a large metropolitan city originally, I find it comical that citizens of this one horse town look down on other citizens of the same one horse town.SMH.

Re: “Let’s Be Real: Dominick’s Real Italian

For a food critic who thinks Olive Garden is real Italian food isn't a real food critic, just a journalist major who can't find a real job. You obviously know nothing about the culinary world so try finding a new job sweety. I've been to Dominicks on numerous occasions and their food is delicious. You obviously have it out for them or something. Food critics in tucson are a joke!

Re: “Let’s Be Real: Dominick’s Real Italian

Speaking as an eastcoast expat who has made an effort to try each and every local pizza joint in this town in the search for an acceptable pie, I advise you to discount this reviewer's opinion and try the pizza for yourself. It is usually wicked good.

Re: “Let’s Be Real: Dominick’s Real Italian

I just can't imagine who gave the job of food critic to Heather. Dominicks may not be upscale Italian food but it certainly is a decent Italian experience. It's family friendly, nice sized portions and a perfect spot for the average dem or republican to go with their family and enjoy good food at decent prices. I totally disagree with your opinion of the pizza. Their crust is the best in town and every combination of toppings always delights. Salads are basic, but good and the pasta dishes are always fresh and tasty. I agree with the others, go back to Olive Garden. Seems like you need to stick ti reviewing chains and stop trying to hurt the small business owners trying to make a living!

Re: “Let’s Be Real: Dominick’s Real Italian

Ive had the pleasure of working for Ted and Sharon at dominicks, this review saddens me because of the hard work they put in to taking care of every single guest they can...the sheer volume may prevent them from time to time but they genuinely want to fix any and all complaints, i have always loved the classic feel in a hipster driven world. There is a place for people who want a break from all the over the top trends within their menu...they have never claimed to be 5 star but i can stand by their fresh and consistent delicious food..most will agree. In the end, they are great people..if you wanna give your money to corporate america feel free, they will welcome you back anytime with arms wide open.

Re: “Let’s Be Real: Dominick’s Real Italian

Are your taste buds so skewed by olive garden that you do not know what real Italian food tastes like? Sounds like you are on the payroll of olive garden, a chain restaurant with so so food. I have been to Dominick's at least 20 times and they have the best Italian food in tucson, great portions, fresh ingredients(maybe that's why you do not have any idea what real Italian food is supposed to taste like), excellent pizza, soups and desserts, specially the cheesecakes and tiramsu. If you need to drink while waiting for excellent food and expect a small family restaurant to have major selections of beer and wine, find another place as you do not deserve to be a customer of Dominick's. I have never in all my visits there heard one person complain about the quality, taste and selection of the food or desserts. Whoever you are stay away from this home style good Italian food restaurant, they do not need people like you. The repeat customers will also agree it's the best in tucson.

Re: “Let’s Be Real: Dominick’s Real Italian

Lol weak ass review. I've eaten there multiple times. The only pizza that is better is Grimaldis. The garlic knots are as good as Brooklyns. The fried zucchini is the best I've had anywhere in town. Go back to Olive Garden. Dominicks doesn't need you.

Re: “Let’s Be Real: Dominick’s Real Italian

With an Olive Garden-worthy palate, you really shouldn't be judging. Dominick's is a local favorite for a reason: healthy portions, amazing pizza, and GREAT service--as a matter of fact, I'd rather eat "flavorless" food under the supervision of a friendly,attentive server than have "authentic" food at a trendy downtown spot where some hipster is going to turn his nose up at my because I need a high chair. Lucky for north siders like myself, Dominick's delivers good food and a nice atmosphere.

Re: “Let’s Be Real: Dominick’s Real Italian

It's at Cortaro Farms and Thornydale, an area I wouldn't approach with a ten-foot fork. The Trump worshippers in this area would rather fill themselves to bursting with dreck than drive into "town" for an authentic pizza at Reilly's.
